Had so much fun with this! I decided this year rather than doing the typical carve your pumpkin decoration, to think a bit more “out of the box”, pull my sleeves up, & get my hands messy (or very glittery for this matter!) Happy Halloween xoxox
All pumpkins were bought from your standard local supermarket, including the little baby one which I just love & couldn’t quite bare to leave behind, so cute! & on the walk home after venturing out in the cold for a shop, I decided to pick out some pretty Autumn leaves that I could use for any decorating purposes, turns out they came in handy after all! I also digged out my paints & brushes that I keep in one too many boxes of arts&crafts (yes you read that right, I think I may have a problem!)
Music up, creative mode on, & I’m well in my element of carving, painting & glittering up these pretty little creations. Quite proud of the final outcome actually, & it was all surprisingly easy! Everyone loved them & I couldn’t have had a lovelier Halloweekend spent with family.
Looking forward to next years now! My mind is overflowing with ideas already..
It’s that time of year again, when overdosing on candy & dressing head to toe in glitter is deemed acceptable behaviour. My favourite time of year!
Yet I still have no set plans as of yet, What is this?! Usually I have a whole array of adventures tucked away up my sleeve & just ready to set loose. Alas, the options as it stands for now are either spending the Halloween weekend over in Oxford to party with friends, or stay in London exploring somewhere spook’tacular like London Dungeons or Fright Night. Decisions, decisions..
Eitherway, I’ve got way more important things to worry about for now, the question that lies on the surface of all girls lips.. What do I wear?!
BOO! Half-faced sugar candy skull, Halloween ’12.
Last year was definitely my favourite to date in choice of Halloween make-up. Received so many compliments & questions! There were even a few who replicated & re-worked this look by using the photos as a guideline. Considering maybe doing a tutorial for this on here? Hmmmmm..
As for this year, I think I might just go all out & take a little bit of everything from here, there & everywhere! Cute lace cat ears with an x-ray vision dress? Skin-tight disco pant jumpsuit with sparkly devil horns? Just have fun with it! & ofcourse not forgetting plenty of glitter/ blood/dark make-up for the full effect.. Meow!

What a better way to unwind at the end of an eventful weekend..?
Autumn is most definitely in full-swing over here in London! & on a rainy Sunday afternoon me & my boyfriend Daniel decided to fully embrace it after taking a beautiful Autumnal walk through the woods together, huddled under a giant umbrella whilst pouring with rain (still didn’t stop us!), spotting deer & acorn collecting. Too bad Danny is apparently petrified of deer haha!!
Later we went on to Starbucks & indulged in their Fall selection of goodies! For me, the salted caramel mocha, & Dan, the pumpkin spice latte, cinnamon rolls were a must for the both of us!
Finished by a cosy night in warming by the fireplace & watching movies.
It is nice to sometimes just stop & appreciate the little things in life, quality time spent with the ones you love most is one of them for me!
